Your parents tell you that you're going on a summer vacation with them, out of the city, out of the country. What's the first thing that comes to mind?

Hawaii! The Caribbean! India! Pakistan!

What do these places have in common? They're hot, summery places but also places that are quite touristy! But the Crazy Creatives are bored of that.

This summer, we decided that we'd go on a vacation to a place that's forbidden. A place that's unusual. A place that thrills you. A new adventure, a new story to tell.

Find out our where we want to go below! Tell us if any of those exciting holiday destinations 'appeal' to you too! If not, what are the most unusual holiday destinations you can think of?

Had a childhood dream of visiting Mars?Pluto maybe?
But now that Mars is too much "Earthly" and Pluto's not considered a planet anymore , how about finding an Alien land yourself.
And if this holiday season your mind screams "Letters to my Alien lover", then hop on the first vacant "spaced" ship to the Earth's Most Alien looking part , a land which was separated from the African mainland about 7 million years ago and is still very much isolated from the general human eye---

Socotra Islands
, a group of four islands , largest known as Socotra , an archipelago in the Indian Ocean.
lildaisyBrief History: Two hundred twenty miles across the Arabian Sea from the rest of troubled Yemen, Socotra was once a legendary place at the edge of maps of the known world. For sailors it was fearsome, with dangerous shoals, ferocious storms, and residents who were believed to control winds and turn ships toward shore for capture and plunder. Today Socotra's rich biological diversity brings new explorers, who hope to learn its secrets before the modern world changes it forever.
The name Socotra is derived from the Sanskrit word , sukhadhara ,
meaning Land of Bliss or Providing Bliss.
Bliss it is to  be part of something so hauntingly remote yet exotically beautiful.
lildaisyPopulation:The inhabitants of Socotra to everyone's disappointment are Homo Sapiens.
Well you gain the Alien land but do lose on the Alien man.

Although people here are generally from the Southern Arabian descent , there are also a number of residents of Somali , African and Indian origin.
The total populace is about 50,000 , though most of them are fishermen who leave for long distances on a large time scale and yes if you seem to think that it could be about mythical communication and an ET might be lurking around for love , you might just be right.
lildaisyLanguage: Being Alien is a lot of responsibility let us be very clear on this fact.
We expect the other side of "normal" ,
and Socotra defines the spacial drama of an Extra Terrestrial to the nth.
The local language , tapped as Soqotri has no written script!
Alien much? For us human it should be.
Yes , theres no alphabets for their language , they speak it , but never write it.

lildaisyMusic: Socotra is weird , its mythical , its Nowheresville , but at the same time Amazing.
Mozart would have been inspired by some place like this.
A big Cello and a baby grand tuned to play a flow of seamless sound , a Veena adding mist to the music.Socotra is not musically deaf.Its sound and dramatic.
Inspired from the Arabian tunes and the slow life , people there keep the music high enough to be heard and low enough to be echoed.
And by the Lord's grace if your eyes get tangled with some bright golden globes ,
love has been found then.
lildaisyFood: With animal and plant life found nowhere else , the food is Alien dear!
Served in distinct styles of all major wild rest countries  , there are no eyeballs for sure.
The taste is "out of this world" to begin with and if your not paying attention your mind will be traveling to fairytales with it.
lildaisyInteresting Facts:  This is the peaceful, exotic, beautiful, unvisited, enchanting part.
One of the most remote places on Earth, Socotra is a lost world, with animal and plant life found nowhere else, plus spotless beaches, dramatic landscapes, frequently forbidding weather, and a local language that has no written script. It's been called "the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean."

...Blood Falls... 

The Vampire Paradise


Brief History
Blood Falls is an outflow of an iron oxide-tainted plume of saltwater, flowing from the tongue of the Taylor Glacier into the ice-covered surface of West Lake Bonney in the Taylor Valley of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica.


The original language of Antarctica, bus (rhymes with "goose"), is still spoken by most of the populace, but generally only used when the speaker wishes to drop down to an intimate level of conversation, "intimate" here in the sense of a feeling of closeness or camaraderie with another. the language one most often encounters in the cities, jungles and snowy mountain villages of Antarctica is English. Although no official language of Antarctica exists (there is virtually nothing about Antarctica that is official), nearly everyone speaks English, and it is the dominant written language. Other than English, the language a visitor is most likely to hear or read in Antarctica is German, which is used primarily for philosophical discussions. Other languages occasionally heard in Antarctica are French, Yiddish, Spanish and Russian.


Between 1,000 to 5,000 people, mostly researchers and scientists, brave the hostile continent every year, inhabiting the unique "town" of McMurdo Station. 

The music native to Antarctica is a quietly rhythmic style called uakti, which is played using instruments unique to the continent. It is similar in some ways to Western jazz in that each piece has a starting point of notes on bars, but then soon takes flight through improvisations. Those who have heard it generally describe it as "evocative", "intricate", and "life-affirming". Although uakti is infused with beautiful melodies, a piece usually must be listened to many times before these melodies begin to emerge in the listener's perception (once emerged, they are never forgotten). There are thousands of uakti pieces that are played with some regularity on the continent.

Foodies'll get a daily dose of shell fish and oysters amongst other foods served with a glass of chilled water! Vegetarians have various options to choose from also. The most popular condiment in Antarctica is mustard (there is said to be over 400 varieties available), followed by mayonnaise and ketchup. Relishes tend to be strong-flavored, and not sweet: the most common are a garlicky blend of chopped-up olives; a cooked mixture of julienned red and green bell peppers and chilies; and a cooked, cooled, minced mushroom spread. It has been said that it is impossible to get a bad meal in an Antarctican restaurant. Even the smallest establishment serves extraordinary food; the most famous places prepare meals that are remembered decades later. 

Interesting Facts
1)There are no churches, synagogues, temples, or other "houses of worship" in Antarctica. 2)Antarcticans are a single race. 3)Only one warm-blooded animal remains on the Antarctic continent during the bitter winter--the emperor penguin.

We have always heard of the phrase, "experience heaven on earth" and there are many beautiful places which we visit and indeed feel "heaven" but considering we all live only once, don't you think we should all experience the opposite to heaven? Yes guys...time to experience hell on Earth! I'm sure we all at some point have felt our life is a living hell...but now lets go visit it.
We CCs present to you another great holiday destination! The one and only


...D e r w e z e...

The door to hell.

Usually we go on holidays with our family and friends, but this can be a trip of a lifetime where you go with your enemies. As they say, keep your friends close and enemies even closer! Why not invite them to this destination and while your there, throw them into the burning fire. ROFL Joking. Don't take it seriously and do it...otherwise we CCs will end up in jail and we don't like jail ki rotiCry

pinkflowergarden Brief History: Derweze also sometimes referred to as a Darvaza was discovered by the Soviet Scientists who were nothing like Newton. Basically, a Scientist accidentally dug a hole and came the "Door to Hell" as it is called in English.

pinkflowergarden Population: This door to hell is located about 7km outside of the village Derweze, Turkmenistan, which has a population of about 350. The flames of the fire generate a golden glow which can be seen for miles around the village. Basically you'll never see the night, thanks to the glow that will never that's what we call "sleepless nights".

pinkflowergarden Language: We're going to assume, that since this wonderful land belongs to Turkmenistan then the majority would speak the Turkmen Language. Or since this land was a discovery of the Soviet, the people here speak Russian.

pinkflowergarden Music: In a place like this, we are least likely to hear the likes of shakira and J-Lo, the only sound you can hear is of the fire burning.

pinkflowergarden Food: The one downside with in regards to food is that, there isn't any restaurants or Punjabi dhabbas nearby, so you either bring your own chicken tandoori and naan or stay near the hole for more than 5 minutes and start filling your rumbling bellies with methane gas. On the whole, seems like an ideal place to visit for those that want to lose weight...forget weight watchers and gyms, just go on holiday to this fantastic place! After all, you are more than likely to lose more weight with no food around!

pinkflowergarden Interesting Facts:
1) Derweze is super rich in gas.
2) Derweze is still found to be beautiful at night because it glows.
3) To avoid any catastrophe, the Soviet Scientists lit the hole with fire.
4) It has been almost 40 years since Derweze has been left to burn with fire, and it still continues to burn.
5) It's considered rather funny that Derweze was not a natural outcome but rather an industrial accident.

If beaches and snow all around the holiday season are making you a dull boy then girl up some fancy little dream about leisure gardens and fairy dolls!
And if being at our next destination will mark you insane , inane and abysmally "Have you lost it!" person , sure a change in personality is no sore? 
So hold your horses and that excited heart beat because this sure will cause some heart attacks - CC presents you dear friends(and their foes)

 .."La Isla de las Munecas"..
(The Island of Dolls)

Brief History: 
Just south of Mexico City, between the canals of Xochimico you can find this small island with a sad background which never intended to be a tourist destination.Island of the Dolls, a name missing at least two adjectives and a four letter word !. To get there, visitors have to hire a guide to take them by boat through the canals of Xochimilco, then to the island itself, ( all the while making the guide promise on a stack of Bibles that he's not going to abandon them once they reach their destination).

It is dedicated to the lost soul of a poor girl who met her fate too soon in strange circumstances.Don Julian Santana Barrera was the caretaker of the island. The story goes that Julian found a little girl drowned in mysterious circumstances while he was not able to save her life.Shortly thereafter, Julian saw a floating doll near the canals. Most probably, the doll belonged to the girl.He picked up the doll and hung it to a tree, as a way of showing respect and support the spirit of the girl.


The area has thousands of people, but this small island is home to hundreds of terrifying dolls. Their severed limbs, decapitated heads, and blank eyes adorn trees.Dolls are threatening, even in the bright light of midday, but in the dark, they are particularly disturbing.

Probably at a place like this all you can do is try to find your voice and if that done scream murder and run like a Olympiad.
Whispering is also a favorite type of communication , which if tales are to believed said by those who have visited the place , is a way the "dolls" talk and have been "heard" doing it.


Funeral March is a systemic , so here you go! Never in life would this music be apt but here.And if theres a chance that you do lift up your "spirits" and try to have fun , then don't carry your "100 Hits of Madonna" because you will hear "Frozen" and that calls for more shivers.


Mexican food means divine intervention. Pun intended. Last supper may just get a new meaning.But not to worry we live to eat!

  Interesting Facts: 

To pay homage or in other words being a subject to exorcism and driven by the little girl's dead , Don Julian Santana left his wife and child and moved onto the island.

He spent 50 years on it , alone , collecting dolls from wherever he could visit.   Eventually, Don Julian transformed the entire island into a kind of bizarre, (for some) horrifying, doll-infested wonderland.

Don Julian Santana began collecting lost dolls from the canals and the trash near his island home. He is also said to have traded produce he grew to locals for more dolls. Santana did not clean up the dolls or attempt to fix them, but rather put them up with missing eyes and limbs, covered in dirt, and generally in whatever ramshackle state he found them in. Even when dolls arrived in good shape, the wind and weather turned them into cracked and distorted versions of themselves.

In 2001 Don Julian Santana was found drowned in the same area in which he believed the little girl had died.
Soulless eyes follow visitors as they visit the small island (which is actually a floating garden).

Kaesong, located just north of the border with South Korea, was the capital of the kingdom that ruled Korea from 918 to 1392. Kaesong's "outstanding universal value," has been recently hailed by UNESCO (the city has been added to the World Heritage List just recently )which called the monuments there of  "exceptional testimony to the unified Koryo civilization as Buddhism gave way to neo-Confucianism in East Asia."

Kaesong is connected to Pyongyang by highway, about two and a half hours away. Also you have group tour buses running daily from Seoul  that were available through Hyundai.However, as of April, 2013, these links have been closed by the North Korean government as part of an increase in tensions in the region post the nuclear tests.

Well when in a city over flowing with history what better place to stay than in a place which speaks of history itself .The Kaesong Folk Hotel which opened in 1989 and is housed in 19 traditional hanok style courtyard houses, many of which date back  to the Joseon Dynasty and retain their original style.

And don't worry if you are  a shopping freak there are loads of places around Kaesong where you can shop for souvenirs ,collectibles etc till you drop !!

Not much of a History Lover (well who is really )but this city vows to turn you into one ..some heritage sites for you to check out ..

 Namdae Gate- was built between 1391 and 1393, at the same time as the inner citadel of the walled city. The citadel used to have seven gates, but only Nam Gate is left. During the Korea War it was severely damaged and rebuilt in 1954.

Manwoldae Palace- "Manwoldae" means "Full moon tower"  ,the official royal residence during the Koryo dynasty, and construction on it began in 919. It was burnt to the ground during the invasion of the Red Kerchieved Rebel Army in 1361; today, only the ruins of the foundation exist.

Tomb of King Kongmin- more correctly known ?s the Hyonjongrung Royal Tomb, ?s ? 14th-century mausoleum located ?n Haeson-ri, Kaepung County ?ust outside ?f the city ?f Kaesong. Consisting of two separate burial mounds, Hyonrung, which contain the remains of Kongmin, 31st king of Koryo dynasty, and Jongrung, which contains his wife, the Mongolian princess Queen Noguk.

 Sonjuk Bridge- built in 1290. It is famous as the place where famed Confucian scholar and statesman Jeong Mong-ju was assassinated .The bridge has been closed to all traffic since 1780 and has been a national monument since then . It is said that it is still possible to see Jeong's blood on the stones there.


Panmunjeom also P'anmunjom, is the surreal truce village on the demarcation line between North and South Korea. A unique living relic of the Cold War this  a small village that happened to lie at the final battle front of the Korean War.

Apart from the above The Koryo Museum is something you wouldn't want to miss out on !!

So Oooh Baby sing a song

And Visit Kaesong !!!

(^^Bad one I knowLOL)

Do you love history? Are you an artist? Do you admire ancient statues? (Especially the creepy looking ones?) Are you a fan of mythology?

Or do you just want a silent get away where no one can find you no matter how hard they try?

Who knows, Easter Island may just be what you're looking for !

"Rapa Nui"
"Isla de Pascua"

E . A . S . T . E . R   I. S . L . A . N . D

Brief History

Lying along the Pacific Ocean near Chile, Easter Island has seen many disasters that one can only dream of or even hear in the news! Over the centuries, the people here have faced famine, disease epidemics, slave raids, and civil war along with various contacts from outsiders (especially the Europeans).

Have you ever imagined a situation where you wake up one day and find out that every single person in your country is dying and there is no chance for survival? That would be quite scary won't it?

Well Easter Island has seen its population crash many times, especially during the 1860s. 


Population :

Easter Island has a very limited population of just above 3000 inhabitants. This place is known to be one of the world's most isolated inhabited areas. If you would like to move out from the city life and spend some quality time away from civilization, then this is definitely the place for you. It is probably the last place one would check for any signs of human movement. 



The local language here is Rapa Nui. Interesting name?

Well Rapa Nui is the language that's been passed down by the Polynesian ancestors of Easter Island. However with time, the influence from the European settlers led to Spanish developing as the mainstream language spoken at Easter Island. Slowly, the Rapa Nui language is fading away as newer generations continue the legacy through Spanish. 


What would we ever do without music right? However, don't expect to hear any pop or hip-hop around here !
Easter Island music is a fusion of traditional Rapa Nui and the culture of Chile. The Rapa Nui music consists of singing in choirs and the use trumpets and other percussion instruments. Due to the influence from Chile, Latin American music, such as tango, has also become an integral part of Easter Island.



Tired of all those pizzas and hamburgers and want to try something a bit more authentic?

Well if you love seafood, then Easter Island is the place for you! This menu incorporates fish, lobsters, eels etc., along with some sweet potatoes, bananas, pineapples, coconuts, and pumpkins !

If you're looking for a classic, then try some umu, meat, fish vegetables and fruit wrapped in banana leaves and roasted in an earth oven. This is possibly your easiest access to a natural oven where you don't need any electricity.


Interesting Facts

1) Stone work is totally in! The culture here was pretty much an extension of Stone Age and the Polynesians that lived here put their crafty skills to work on various local stones, such as obsidian, basalt, etc.

2) Easter Island is especially famous for its large stone statues, known as Moai. These were carved from 1100-1680 CE and about 887 of these statues have been discovered till date.

3) Ever heard of the Hieroglyphics by the Egyptians? Well come find the Petroglyphs of the Polynesians ! Easter Island has an extensive collection
of these pictures carved into rocks.
